on and it was preliminary information. but anyway the worst lie was karl rove -- after the election saying that the obama campaign suppressed the vote. that's the only lie but a real heifer. >> uh-huh. worst lie awards goes to aged it our prosecute -- you guessed it our president. but the congressional research service the crs lords that for every 2 cents of tax breaks oil and gas companies get wind and solar companies get $1. honorable mention pat buchanan? >> for person of the year, vladimir putin. you were right earlier john. it's a real comeback for him. he has been in power for a long time but he is holding on and i think there's a lot to this guy really and i think he is not an enemy of the united states. and he's not the greatest strategic threat. >> trade-off. >> mitt romney said. >> you can't go wrong. eleanor? >> congresswoman caroline mccarthy who has been working tirelessly on behalf of gun safety since winning her congressional seat after her husband was murdered in a shooting accident -- not accident, in a mass shooting incident on the long island railroad. she is now cosponsoring a bill to
boehner. >>> plus, karl rove hasn't learned a thing is since its infamous air meltdown. why is he questioning polls again? >>> and a very special guest is here with me tonight. we have a gold medal winner onset. gabby douglas live in the studio. her story of sacrifice inspired a country. you're watching "politicsnation" on msnbc. initiated. neural speeds increasing to 4g lte. brain upgrading to a quad-core processor. predictive intelligence with google now complete. introducing droid dna by htc. it's not an upgrade to your phone. it's an upgrade to yourself. >>> have you joined the "politicsnation" conversation on facebook yet? we hope you will. today our fans were buzzing over the newly released photo of the president on the phone with mitt romney as he conceded to him on election night. he have len says, the president was probably so glad it was over so that he could get back to working for our country. david says, he must have been elated and relieved. linda says, i know how he felt. so happy. we want to hear your thoughts on this picture. and any other story you are interested
recently, two billionaire-backed groups, one associated with the koch brothers, one with karl rove's network of mysterious givers, these two groups donated over 60% of grover norquist's budget. i mean, isn't that what's really going on with the system, that the lobbyists chiefly presenting a more -- preventing a more equitable tax system is beholden to the plutocrats? >> money plays way too big a part in our political system today. you know, from both sides. you know, there's way too much money coming into it -- that there's no control over it, that what you have -- well, let me tell you -- in my book, bill, i probably have the most extreme position on this than anybody, because what i have proposed in terms of political campaigns, that no money should come from any source other than from individual human beings. i would get rid of political action committee money, political party money, labor union money, corporate money. you know, i would go down to small amounts that are instantly reported, all transparent. i think we have to do that, because it is this money pouring in -- what
there is every reason to believe it will keep losing elections mpl here's what karl rove believes the republican party needs to change. >> i hate to say but we need to copy what howard dean did. make our ground game in all 50 states. >> joining me now, the man behind the former 50 states strategy, howard dean. governor dean, did you ever think there was a time when karl rove would say we need to be more like howard dean? >> i did not. it comes as a large surprise to me as well. look, it is true that the obama ground game is the best i ever saw it. it was unbelievable. and the republicans have a lot of work to do. they're way behind. that ground game is not enough to win. the fact of the matter is you can nod peddle hate of immigrants, gays, lesbians and women by saying god's will is to make women pregnant when you're raped. if that's what you believe, if that's what conservative principles are, you may as well go some place else. we're done. the argument is over. and these guys have to change their philosophy, not just their ground game. >> governor, according to reince priebus, the growth and o
, indeed. one story people are talking about, he's back. he's back. we reported that karl rove and dick morris had been benched at fox news. >> bill: that didn't take long, did it? >> yesterday karl rove turned up again on special report with bret baier. so all of these reports about him being benched may or may not be true. >> bill: what was it? a week? yeah maybe. >> wasn't that long. >> bill: i guess dick morris will be back on sean hannity tonight. >> god help us if he does show back up but yeah. clearly taking them off the bench. >> bill: as long as you're willing to bash barack obama you'll have a home on fox. no doubt about it. so amanda, this is -- this is not going to end. even if rick schneider signs this bill today. >> no. >> bill: this is going to be an on-going battle. >> it will keep going. you will see attempts to repeal the bill. whether passing new legislation attempts perhaps to recall the legislators who voted for it. there will be the elections in 2014. i think it has woken labo
strategists within the beltway. some people that you know about, that you've heard about. mr. rove, and i keep saying this because everybody says we should go back to karl rove's concept of the big tent. no. for karl rove the big tent is big, but it's empty. [laughter] because it's just to talk about the economy. talk about the economy, talk about the economy. don't talk about immigration. we went into nevada, people said don't talk about social issues, don't talk about immigration. and i said i'm going to talk about social issues, and i'm going to talk about immigration. we need -- the problem was that they thought that, the strategists told the republican candidates to win the primary you have to move to the extreme right on immigration. you have to sound like a restrictionist. and that is wrong. every study shows the american people, republicans and democrats, support immigration reform. he could have had a much more constructive message from the beginning of the primary. and if -- and i think he would have been much more competitive in the general election. now, i'm not saying that if you

, the president took his pitch to michigan. we look at the prospect of negotiating settlement with karl rove and joe trippi. they are back. they have numbers but no electoral maps. suppose both sides get a deal done in the next few days. what would the timeline look like for beating the end of the year deadline. we get out the crystal ball and calendars. brit hume has analysis on how a deal could get done. new video shows use of chemical weapons by the government. and california is going all in on solar power but a lot of californians say solar is taxpayer and consumer ripoff. "special report" starts at 6:00 eastern now. back to new york and my colleagues with "the five." ♪ ♪ >> dana: all right. several new developments to report on the royal phone prank in the u.k. radio station has taken the two d.j.s off the air who called the hospital where princess kate was being treated. they duped nurses to thinking they were the queen and prince charles. the nurse who put through their call, her name was saldana found dead of apparent suicide on friday. though they have not released the cause of

, barack obama might not be in the white house. you can just ask karl rove. >> they lost 612,000 union members in 2010 alone. now think about it. every one of the 612,000 people had union dues going into the political coffers of their union to spend on politics. so yeah, you keep having couple 100,000 people each year, if a half million people leave the labor movement every year, and pretty soon you start having a crimp in the political budgets of these unions, it has a direct effect on the presidential. >> let's crimp the political budgets throughout, and the way we can do that is pass a right-to-work law that will tell union members that they real hi don't have to pay dues. that way they're not going to pay them, and that way it's going to reduce their resources even more. it's going to shake the foundations of the democrats even more. the koch brothers aring why is is making all the phone calls? who is doing all the social networks stuff. where are they getting money for that? they're getting it from the unions. without labor, democrats lose a solid base in wisconsin, michigan, ohio
. another obligation was to meet and turn the public which made him into a roving commercial advertisement, particularly for canadian pacific railway. a book near reading journey appeared the following year. hard to tell how much of it is his own prose. his comment on meeting the press in london, reporters were awfully with the end we have a lot of fun together, hands that the newsroom pros back in copenhagen and give him a final shape. but for the 44 days he went round the world, he was the star of the show. the premise of the journey was that a circumnavigation was the ultimate adventure, a good, but not dangerous test of character. that emphasis was reinforced by the reid introduction to the english translation which was written by graham stating around the world, everyone of us has made the voyage many times in our imaginations. the introduction made at this point typical not to magellan, the great pioneer of the whole thing. it threw in francis drake for good measure, but in its fast board to jules verne his posthumous of reputation was beginning his to send. his stories were challeng
the election and karl rove went on to say, no, wait a minute. this is not over yet. a little reminder. >> we got to be careful about calling things when we have like 991 votes separating the two candidates and a quarter of the vote yet to count. >> now, the reason why to me that was the defining moment because the republicans were just shell shocked. you guys really seemed to think you were going to win this. >> one thing to score a touchdown, another to do a victory dance in the end zone. there was a lot of data error and bias and part is the commercialization of polling in a way that absurds the industrialization of the use of the polling data that biases -- if maybe we can just listen to nate next time. predictions for 2013. each have one. >> all right, well, i was going to say immigration reform is going to pass the united states congress and be signed into law by the president and may be the re-emergence of arab springlike protests in jordan. >> i think there will be progress in immigration reform, not on gun control. >> the relationship with israel will continue to deteriorate if netan
of the hurricane. also rove was pushing that nonsense last week. obviously rove and morris have the most explaining to do. >> stephanie: and o'reilly. apparently there's one now and only because of hurricane sandy. >> he went on -- o'reilly went on leno and was explaining last week romney just disappeared after the hurricane hit. the last week. interesting point he said he would have had romney on for the entire hour, you know, the night before the election. they made that offer. they made it to obama. but o'reilly couldn't get romney on his show and would have given romney an entire hour the night before the election. so he says -- basically you know, if you come on my show, he would have won. if there hadn't been a hurricane, he would have won. >> stephanie: if anything, we learned more exposure to mitt romney. much more popular. >> stephanie: sure. let's dive into the right-wing world. bill crystal on the fox news sunday. >> still a spending problem. most of the spending -- the president seems to have no interest in us
about. mr. rove, and i say this because they say, oh, go back to carl rrk ove's con cement of the big tent. no, that is big, but it's empty. it's just to talk about the economy. talk about the economy. talk about the economy. don't talk immigration. we went to nevada. people said don't talk about social issues or immigration. i said i'm talking about social issues and immigration. we need -- the problem was they thought that the strategists told the republican candidates to win the primary, you have to move to the extreme right on immigration. you have to sound like a restrictionist. that is wrong. every study shows, american people, republicans and democrats, support immigration reform. he could have had a more constructive message from the beginning of the primary, and if -- he would have been more competitive in the general election. now, i'm not saying that if you have a good position on immigration you win enough support from latino voters, but at least they will not tune you out. we were tuned out completely. they were not listening to us, and, again, i go back to the media, par
're talking about is a set of washington's reckless spending habits. another guy stood up and said karl rove spoke this morning and you just read an article saying this is obama's problem. he seemed like a nice guy, but at karl rove spew better than yours. they were unwilling to listen to this show when amberson asked one of the tea party freshman. she said i.t. party constituents who insist we shouldn't raise the debt ceiling. can you explain what this is about? i don't want to lose my temper to them. i'd rather use it to you. this guy said the thing is it then reckless spending and if these are consequences, so be it. emerson went home and said wormy bequests of wine. i cannot believe i had a meeting with the type who claims to be a congressman. [laughter] >> although that would be a perfect base to land, we have one last question before we wrap it up. >> given that you go to a lot of these house of rep meetings, town halls, community meetings, are you hearing more or have you always hear people's day, if you just two days, meaning there's a correlation between doing some thing and in an r

of questions if you have a question, there is a roving microphone. you often hear that the strive to the top is tough and when you are competing to get their, it's pretty relaxed. >> i think you are always mindful of what you're doing and making sure you are doing everything opprobrious they're all going to be happy people and say everything is great but i elena want to know what the other side of the coin as. i want to know if the other side of the argument as an make the best decisions. sometimes i have gone against what my advisers told me to and they came out better. >> how do you deal when you make any mistake and it is public? >> don't let it stick. >> how do you do that? >> is hard. you could be like teflon. isn't easy but you try to learn from mistakes and try to avoid anything that looks similar. for young people, if you are in a career and want to change, be a sponge. soak up as much information as you can. reno all that stuff that falls out. let it all out. then you will be stronger because you are ready to clean it up. that an analogy i think about. if you let the soaking up of b
seem to be only too willing to do it. they're in the booking rove on fox because of that fiasco. which made good tv, but apparent apparently, i don't know, but he says republicans will get the blame for going off the cliff, but the president will be weakened the most. and orrin hatch called geithner's statement one of the most stunning and irresponsible statements that he's heard in some tile. soo can the economy avoid the cliff and rides above? anyway, senior u.s. economist and managing director at ubs. do you think we'll get a deal? >> i think we'll get a deal. do we get it before the holidays or after for markets, it matters. it's been a drag for the last nine months. so the idea that there is more uncertainty now than there was six months ago, how does that work? there was no fiscal cliff deal six months from now and still no deal. so i'm not sure why we think there's more uncertainty. i would say if you really think about it the president has a lot of ways to delay the impact. for example, our withholding table don't have to get change order january 1. even if you haven't struck a
. this is big guns. host: and h. robert asks -- host: back to the column by karl rove in while "the wall street journal." guest: speaker boehner is a very decent guy. he believes in compromise. he is reasonable. we tried to make republicans into a character as if they are insensitive and do not care about the less fortunate. i know people like to go back to the rear their comments with mitch mcconnell said their goal was to make sure the president does not succeed. the president has won again. we need to work. there are people that do not know how they will meet their mortgage or rent obligation. they didn't know how they will pay their medicine. there will compromise about getting a meal a day or to pay for their medicine. there are real issues. people have to decide if they have enough money to pay for gas. these politicians have the best benefit packages and sometimes have lost touch with the everyday common people. we have to address the real issues that americans are facing. we all have been diminished in this economy. host: we have a tweet from jim buck. mason in ohio, please go ahead wit
. >> steve: yes. i think carl rove is offering a dinner for four which would be interesting. there will be a big concert. billy joe and paul mccartney and banding together in the garden. they put tickets on sale and sold out within minutes and now scalpers out there pocketing thousands of dollars. and the money should go to sandy victims and instead people who are lucky enough to get in on the tickets they are going to be able to make a lot of dough on the backs of the victims. >> i am not sure what you would do about that. if someone said to me you want to go to the concert and the ticket was $150 and you paid $300 from a scalper. but if you paid a $1,000. we need to figure out somebody in the governor's office to call and report it, to. if they make a small margin that is fine. but hundred for a ticket and you are sold a thousand or 2000 something has to do. >> brian: if you buy it from us. any money over the face value goes to the robinson foundation. >> steve: the new york daily news and somebody telling tickets for $60,000. that money would go in theirr pocket. >> you c
not favor it and it can be used politically. karl rove called it the gift that keeps on giving. for many years, it did. one thing the conservatives did not count on are two things. one, most families have a gay son or daughter they love or a cousin or uncle they cherish. the other thing, thomas, is at the end of the day, they didn't anticipate that conservatives themselves would come to see this as a conservative issue. >> sure, it's a traditional value. >> absolutely. >> when you have vehicle dick cheney who has a daughter who wanted to get married and start a family. just not from individuals on the right. we have seen elizabeth now. we have nine states in washington d.c. area having legalized marriage equality. >> right. >> the initial issue with the court taking this issue up was met with relief by certain people, certain marriage equality. some worry having the court involved could stall the progress. do you think there's the possible likelihood of that? >> no. i mean, i think there's always a likelihood, but i think the u.s. supreme court has ended up time and time again in our his
-- dan concludes his column this way -- right below that is karl rove's weekly column in the wall street journal. "what obama is really bargaining for" is the headline. that caller of this morning in the wall street journal. this is gary in ohio on our independent line. caller: good morning. i feel that the united states is divided. just like your show, you have a republican member, democratic member, independents number. as long as we can -- they can divide us into 3 or four groups, they are going to do with a one- two. just like at the conventions for both parties, how on the screen they read off of, they took a vote and had it scripted on the screen what was going to happen. they already had the answer on the screen. you get all this stuff out of d.c. and no one has said a word for six months about libel. -- libor. guys th these guys have been setting the bank rates 40 years. nobody gets in trouble or goes to jail. there is no law in washington. they are running the guns. it's up about gunrunning. there is as much dope down there as there is gunrunning. host: thank you for calling. fr
of the discussion is that rove is calling in general. i said why do they call you general? reinfected near me? said later in the muslim brotherhood? he said yes. how did you keep that a secret? they give us training on how to hide her affiliation while the military. as steve's dissertation advisor likes to say, the pearl of any code is data. so that is one anecdote. but if you find multiple of these, we be able to keep that a pattern, but we don't have that at the moment. >> just one closing thought. i think very very impressive bunch and bought eric and i were meeting with some of the leaders a couple months ago, there's no panel of young people. during a coffee break, one of them explains that he met his wife at harvard. so well educated, here in america at the finest universities and his wife, they met at harvard. that is something we can look forward to the harvard educated southeast party leadership coming in egypt. with that, please join me in thanking first ambassador shalom cohen, my colleagues eric trager and congratulating once again, steve cook. thank you off for joining us today. [appla
. we have time for a couple of questions for the secretary. there are some roving microphones. you often hear the strive to the top is it tougher when you're competing to get there and it is kind of brutal. .t's pretty relaxed at the top are the knives still out/ >> you are always mindful of one you are doing and making sure that you were doing everything appropriate and that you surround yourself with people that are not just all going to be happy people and say yes, yes, yes, everything is great. i want to know what the other side of the argument is and to make the best decisions. sometimes i have gone against what my advisers have told me to do and they cannot better. >> how you internalize making a mistake that is public? >> do not let it stick. >> how do you do that? that is such a talent. >> it is hard. you hear that you can be cold and you can be teflon. it isn't easy. you try to learn from your mistakes and try to avoid anything coming back that looks similar to that. for young people, if you want to change your career and thinking you have to make a big jump, be a sponge a
about cutting spending before coming to us for more money. gregg: you know what, doug? karl rove wrote an op-ed in "the wall street journal" which he basically says, the president think it is all about him. the more mr. obama makes everything about him, the more stubborn he is likely to be when flexibility would be better. success requires adjustments, including a greater willingness to compromise and seek common ground with his opposition. fair point? >> oh, i think it is a fair point. i think it is a fair point on both sides. we had a framework that did what terry described. it was called bowles-simpson. the president didn't support it. paul ryan didn't support it. it didn't have the kind of bipartisan consensus we needed. gotten us $4 in spending cuts for one dollar in revenue increase. bottom line we lack common purpose as a nation. both parties i believe are to be blamed. gregg, as we go to the end of the year and the christmas season i would hope we would have a common purpose, put partisanship aside and say how do we put the nation first? sadly, no one is doing that. gregg: it i
during the same period of time that we know karl rove was contacting federal prosecutors and pushing them towards politically advantageous prosecutions. the two years later that investigation led to an indictment of seigleman on a medicaid fraud charge that was such a terrible case the judge threw it out for lack of evidence before a single witness had a chance to testify. then, in 2005, the u.s. attorney's office indicted seigleman again, this time on rico charges for allegedly giving a state position to a donor in exchange to donations to a campaign the governor was running, not his own, to state lottery to better fund the state's schools. the national prosecutor managing that case, was u.s. attorney allow are can necanary. and get this, the campaign manager for the republican governor bob riley who seigleman had almost defeated in 2002 and who had seigleman had vowed to run against in 2006. that's right. the u.s. prosecuting attorney managing the case was married to the man managing the case of seigleman's opponent. the star witness for the prosecution who came he had saw the governor
